10 Months

We've reached double digits!  Baby J seems more like a toddler and less like a baby every day.  She's pulling herself up on everything, cruising around on furniture and she's a speedily little crawler.  It's hard to keep things out of her reach now.  When we go to get her away from something she's not supposed to be in, she'll give us a coy little look at take off crawling away from us.  It's so sassy, but so cute too.

Right at 10 months, Baby J got sick for the first time (same as Little A... right at 10 months, sick).  Poor girl caught a stomach bug going around day care.  Luckily she was only really sick for 24 hours, but it was still a sad few days around that time for Baby J.  Before she got sick, she had been refusing to eat much of anything.  No bottles, no baby food, no table food, only milk from Mommy.  I was starting to get really nervous that she wasn't getting enough to eat, but when she recovered from her sickness, she started eating a ton!  We went out to lunch with E's grandma, and I'm pretty sure she ate more than Little A.
This month she's really been really excited when E or I get back from work.  When I get to day care, she'll start squealing and bouncing if she's still in her high chair, or crawling right to me.  One day she got away from J, and almost got down the landing step before I got inside.  It's a such a sweet way to be greeted.  When E gets home from work it's much the same.  Her face lights up, and she'll say, "da, da, da!"  She does not appreciate it if E or I pick up Little A first.  Baby J is letting us know that she needs her attention first!
So, the next pictures shows just how hard it can be to do the monthly photos of this silly little girl.  She is CONSTANTLY on the move, and trying to get away.  Luckily, E was home when I was getting these photos, so I had some help, but she is very wiggly and quick, so it was still quite a challenge.
